My friends and I stayed at Casa Corcovado for the World cup and it definitely made our experience even better. The place is as described and it is located at a very accessible area. Really close to Cristo Redentor and walking distance from the bus terminal where you can take buses around most of the tourist attractions in Rio. It is also just a few minutes bus ride from the metro, which can also help take you around the city easily. The location is also safe.
The hosts are also very accommodating and very friendly, and they attend to your needs very well. The place also gives you a chance to get to know other visitors, which is a really good experience for a traveller.
I would love to come back someday and I would recommend the place strongly to my friends.
I had an incredible experience staying at this unique artsy home in the heart of Corcovado. The hosts were very hospitable and easy going. We enjoyed the aesthetic of the old home decorated with incredible art and antique furniture. You could easily spend a day on the patio enjoying the jungle and the view of the Cristo. Not to mention plenty of exotic wild life to keep you entertained. Also you can hike directly to the Cristo from the house (about a 2 hour hike up- just follow the road to the top).
Walking distance to Cosme Velho, close to bus stops and taxis. Transportation can be a little tricky at first but once you get yourself situated you can easily navigate yourself. The hosts are very helpful with directions.
Can't explain how happy we found this listing on Airbnb, really a unique experience. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of Copacobana then this may not be for you, but if you are looking for something that has a lot of soul and nature then this is definitely your deal ;).
Комната просторная, большая кухня, в доме всегда прохладно, вообщем все необходимое для комфортного отдыха имеется. Просторный двор с кучей зелени, обстановка в доме - колоритная, не в одной гостинице не найдете, восхищает просто! Catarina and Joao (хозяева дома) очень доброжелательные и отзывчивые. Все подскажут и расскажут.
Пару вещей на заметку:
географически - дом расположен очень удобно для туристов. Автобусы и станция метро- рядом, как в центр города, так и на пляж доберетесь без проблем.
дом находится на возвышенности, так что если с чемоданами, то лучше на такси. Налегке - подниматься не более 5 мин.
Спасибо, за прекрасный отдых!!

I spent 3 wonderful months at Casa Corcovado. I was able to work, study, meditate and host friends. Joao and Catarina were very responsive to any concerns I had and helped me in many ways during my stay. The soul of the house is very strong, there are always artists and musicians coming through and music being played. There is also a library with books in different languages. I had a great stay and hope to return soon.
Tivemos dois dias maravilhosos em Itaipava, a região é muito bonita. A casa superou nossas expectativas, é linda, estilo colonial, muito mais bonita e aconchegante do que visto nas fotos. O suporte do Sr. João e seus funcionários foram impecáveis. Adoramos e voltaremos com certeza.
A melhor possível. João é um ótimo anfitrião e atende todas as perguntas/dúvidas.
Em relação a casa, ela é muito antiga. Quem tem alergia como eu, não é aconselhavel ficar por lá, pois tem carpete e muita coisa enpoeirada. A área externa é excelente e ótima para passar o dia. A casa é de rua, contudo´é bem reservada.
Tudo que queríamos encontramos neste local, tranqüilidade, natureza, segurança. Em breve retornaremos, obrigado pelo cordialidade João. Sucesso !!!
Excellent experience with Joao and Cata. They were waiting for us and they are very kind. The house is exactly what you need when you want to be comfortable and pay a low price. The neighborhood is nice, close to transportation facilities. We always could take a hot shower and cook something for breakfast. Hugs to Joao and Cata!
Joao is an interesting person, very kind and polite. It's a pleasure to talk with him, he is always interested in learning new things. He is very available. I would definitely recommend to host him! I hope to be his guest in Rio one day.
